factory too far where you're like okay, we get it, michael dukakis and the pledge. this indian thing worked for him, this native-american thing worked for him for a short while. but he stayed on it. almost as if he has nothing else to attack her on and now this asbestos thing? he looks a little desperate right now. >> well, he probably is a little desperate right now. i'm not talking about the poll numbers, talking about the fact that president obama who is going to hammer mitt romney in his home state beat him by 20 points, that's a mathematical tough hill to climb. -- >> unless barack obama has a couple more bad debates. >> massachusetts won't matter. >> well, the margin does matter though. >> scott brown, clearly, apparently has not taken enough advantage of, is people sense that perhaps we should have one republican in washington. let's just send one republican in washington just to balance the scales, to keep people honest. this, you know, talking about elizabeth warren's indian heritage or whatever it is. >> come on. >> it doesn't register to people. it does not register. >> th
life in afghanistan was honored on saturday. the navy's newest ship, the "uss michael murphy," it was commissioned in new york city. the destroyer is named for the first awarded the medal of honor during that war in afghanistan. murphy was killed trying to save fellow s.e.a.l.s during an ambush back in 2005. >>> and nearly two dozen people were injured when a bus overturned in new jersey saturday. the bus traveling from toronto, canada, to new york went off an exit ramp sliding down an embankment before stopping finally on its side. eight of the passengers were critically injured, but none of the injuries are considered life-threatening. police believe the bus driver was driving too fast. >>> and finally here's something any football fan, well, any bratwurst fan would want at their tailgate today. this is -- check this out -- the world's largest or rather longest bratwurst. a wisconsin supermarket set the record on saturday cooking and serving the 52-inch -- sorry, 52'2" sausage, even had a bun custom-made to fit it. the grocery store spent about $20,000 on the brat and organ
who hurt your family, but don't just sit there. >> i think i got more angry than michael dukakis appeared to. oh wow what a question. >> there's all kind of moments like this. we have some of them are hard to do on radio but we may go to some of them, the nonverbal cues often are what kills people in these debates. we got a call coming in from camille in north carolina. >> good morning, jamal and everyone else. i just want to say debates do matter. people who say oh, debates don't matter, i don't want to say they're unintelligent, but are uninformed. debates matter to me, because it's my mind and i know what i collect all year long and then when i hear you speak on point or off point that's when i think. people who say debates don't matter, i don't think they have a mind. >> camille, do you like it when you see the two candidates standing up there together, does that matter to you to see them side by side? >> yes! everything, it's a communication and we collect information evidence and put it in -- it's in our head. everything matters. >> very good, thank you camille. next, shirl
